compromising. an additional medicare tax and a compromise where you recognize the cost savings potentials, recognize the priorities of the president but at the same time move towards the house by having more progressive revenue raising other taxes like the medicare tax or a small millionaire's tax. >> ifill: what about that, josh bivens? >> some sort of compromise could be useful here. >> ifill: like what? >> i mean, one, have the senate bill move a little bit toward the house. but if you want to do some kind of cost sharing i think you have to actually target excessive benefits. i don't think the excise tax does it. one can imagine a way of constructing a thax that goes after plans that are generous in terms of actual generosity of coverage. >> ifill: what is an excessive benefit. >> that's a big problem too. one person's excessive benefits is another person's insulation from risk. you have people, you know, i'm enough of an economist to believe that people trade-off wages for these health insurance benefits. they've voted with their feet. they clearly value these benefits. excessive is
elderly people may face a tax on a certain medicare program that they now have and that this could actually end up hurting lower income seniors the most and he gives details, specific stories about senior citizens and the kind of pain that they might feel in their pocketbooks. >> right. to avoid taking money in the pocket, they have this thing called medicare advantage. in medicare advantage, my mom actually has it, it's a tremendous boom and people are protective of it. they're allowed to go to private insurance and have them cover themselves. right now, they're going to tax that. won't that work be countederproductive to medicare advantage? there's no advantage. >> apparently, it will impose a tax on medicare, medicaid, the children's health insurance program, chip, and tricare which is for families of military dependents because they -- and because these particular plans have no profits to absorb the tax or pass it on, they'll have only one option and that is bob dole writes, to reduce health care services and that is bad. >> and we should point out that bob dole does say that
current state. >> a lot of what was being proposed between the half a trillion of medicare cuts, the cuts potentially for veterans and looking at the higher taxes, almost a one size fits all program, is not good for massachusetts. >> reporter: so in a sense after more than half a year of single minded focus on health care reform, the democrats now find themselves back at scare one practically, though they say they're still committed to passing something this year. >> nancy cordes on capitol hill. thank you very much. >>> also in washington this morning is howard dean, former chairman of the democratic national committee. dr. dean, how are you this morning? >> i'm very well, thank you. >> is health care dead? >> i don't think so. i think the american people want health care reform. what they didn't want was something that was written by the insurance industries. and this is a very washington-centered proposal that finally came over to the house. so i think they'll try again, put something in there that the american people want. the american people really do want us to do something about th
it. you know, i've come on with you guys and i think we should have been much clearer about medicare. we understand how it works. it was a democratic initiative. this expanded five years or something like that. >> but, for instance, medicare for all. >> yeah. i mean, i think that that has been messaged very well and i also think let the senate and housework its will, that by definition is an unclear thing and muddled and the like. i also think something else. look, we're doing tough things. you're doing health care no matter who did it you're going to take a lot of lumps for it. i think you can critique how it's done, but there's no doubt the president is trying to solve the problems of the american people. the problem we have, this reminds us more of 1993. the president is doing incrementally good things but we in congress are taking our lumps every step of the way. and i also think when people who are against things are always more animated than people who are for things. there's a lot of headwinds. i don't want to do a postmortem until there's a mortem. >> this could be new hampsh
taxes, it will hurt medicare, it will destroy jobs and run our nation deeper into debt. >> we'll always remember our terrific senator ted kennedy and his words, the work begins anew, the hope rises again, and the dream lives on. >> we're breaking down this improbable win for the gop and its likely impact on health care reform. we've got the best political team on television this morning. suzanne malveaux, live at the white house with reaction from democrats who no longer enjoy a filibuster proof, but we start with jim acosta. it's such an irony, ted kennedy's dying wish was to see america's health care system overhauled and the seat goes to a republican who has completely different ideas. >> reporter: that's right, john. and democrats may hope that what happened in massachusetts stays in massachusetts, but that is not going to be the case if a remember in scott brown can campaign across this state saying he will vote against health care reform in what is a very liberal state, obviously the signs for the democrats, not good, coming up in these midterm elections as this campaign goes on,
with its medicare cuts and tax hikes. and if there's a sweetheart deal that needs to be cut, democrats will cut it. and if there's a vote that needs to be bought, they'll buy it. haven't we had enough of government propped up on payoffs and pork barrel spending? haven't we had enough of the same old us versus them politics that uses yesterday's battles to distract us from today's problems? we're all in this together and need positive forward-looking solutions to bring us together. >> boehner also says the democratic health plan is something families just can't afford and want nothing to do with. >>> haitians are saying their good-byes to the catholic bishop at port-au-prince. he died last week in the earthquake. archbishop timothy dolan and vatican's ambassador to haiti joined about 1,000 mourners in a park across the street from the ruins of the city's cathedral. the ceremony also doubled as a funeral for vicar charles benoit who died in the disaster. >>> if you give money to help the victims of the haiti earthquake, you can write off your charitable donations in this year's return, t
' jewelry sold right here in the united states. we'll have more on what exactly is going on. medicare. it doesn't cover everything. >>> 20 minutes past the hour. we're minding your business right now, and there is a warning out for parents, some chinese manufacturers are now replacing lead in children's jewelry with another dangerous metal, cadmium. the associated press conducted lab tests on more than 100 items purchased in new york, in ohio, texas and california. they found levels of cadmium as high as 91%. it's linked to some cancers and also affects brain development in young children, even more so than lead. the consumer product safety commission now says it is opening an investigation and will take action, quote, as quickly as possible to protect the safety of children. >>> and stephanie elam here minding your business this morning. bonus season just about upon us, and some very happy people. >> i don't know about that. actually, i think a lot of workers are very unhappy, because -- >> the ones receiving the bone uses? >> because they're not as big as they were. this is an issue
's deficit will double it. at the same time that medicare is going bankrupt, social security going bankrupt. medicaid is upside down. this is a nightmare. >> well, first -- >> the bigger crisis is medicare. >> we have had creative accounting and self-dealing going on for a long time. the fed purchases a significant majority of all u.s. debt last year. we have a situation where the housing entities are not being consolidated. they have huge losses. people saying they are doing things to try and help reduce medicare costs, but they are spending the money someplace else. all kinds of creating accounting and self-dealing going on. >> we'll go to chris tnctie in minute. i was struck by the creative accounting. they were making up trillions. you wrote a story mid summer about the fdic created $1 trillion out of thin air by a bureaucratic trick. this creative accounting makes our situation so much worse. >> it does. and, frankly, actually, that decision by the fdic at the time has in a way come back to haunt us. i don't know if you recall at the end of this year, the fdic was almost bankrupt and h
